Hi again. I'm planning to upload Ernest Vincent Wright's Gadsby (via ZIP) in two days. Since it's a ZIP file (which I've never tried before), how long will it take before the file becomes a PDF?

Speaking of PDF, I tried to stitch up the bundle several times last weekend--but to no avail. (Consider that the sites I used have a hard time with anything 300 MB+ in size! Beyond that, it'll take some special software to do it--and I can't afford it at that point.)

Again, look for the special edition at Amazon's Kindle Store.

to create a zip that will derive to pdf and other formats:

name the scanned page files chronologically e.g. 001booktitle.jpg, 002booktitle.jpg and so on.

then put them in a zip named and upload that zip file. depending on the size of the zip it should take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour to derive the other formats once the tasks begin to run. 300mb is not a problem.
